Nicknamed “Hobble Creek”, Springville was first discovered and explored in 1776 by Silvestre Vélez de Escalante, a Franciscan missionary and the man who was tasked with exploring the Southwest United States during the 18th century. Springville received its nickname after it was incorporated in 1853 by the pioneers because their horses had their feet tied (“Hobbled”) and left to graze on the grass by the stream.
